Winooski Rec. & Vermont Patriots 2021 Youth Soccer

VT PATS

Registration is now open for the 2021 spring season of our Youth Soccer program in partnership with Vermont Patriots!

The Vermont Patriots (VTP) base their philosophy primarily on the guidelines by the US Youth Soccer and the Vermont Soccer Association, but their multicultural founding members have included aspects of coaching philosophies from Europe, South America, and Africa. Coaching sessions are first and foremost child-centered, age-appropriate, and fun. The program's training emphasizes technical abilities, mental and physical speed and agility, and tactical comprehension - each at their age-appropriate level.
